I have a few wonderful bits of art licensing news to share!
Do you remember HERE how kind you were to respond when I asked way back
if you'd like to help with product development?
Well, some of you participated and I gathered your ideas and mine
and painted away and sent it all in to the company who manufactures and requested them.
After patiently waiting, we just heard this week that
will be purchasing both Teacher Bits and Mother Bits for their stores.
Waiting to hear if this is for most or all of their stores...
Family Christian Stores® is America's leading specialty retailer with nearly 300 locations and over 4,000 employees in 36 states dedicated solely to the $4.3 billion Christian retailing market. Family Christian Stores® sells Christian products and church supplies through its chain of stores and via the Internet. Merchandising categories include Bibles, Books, Music, Childrens, Gifts, Apparel, Software, Cards, Church Supplies and DVD's.
Teacher Bits will roll out before the new school year
and Mother Bits will launch before Mother's Day.
Other retailers nationwide will be selling them too.
I am pretty thrilled about this, since I clearly remember when the good Lord gave me
this small but clever idea to package sweet sentimental notes in cd tins.
I researched unique packaging for months and this product has proven to be
such a popular gift and personal purchase for so many age groups.
I use them all of the time too!
Now Grace Bits and Christmas Bits are produced by the thousands and sold globally
...and Teacher Bits and Mother Bits are soon to follow.
Thanks be to God is all I can say!
And thanks to many of you who sent in your favorite scripture, quotes, sayings and ideas.
I could not use them all and can't show you all the designs, but here's a peek.
